New Stamp

I went to the Craft Barn yesterday, had fun at a Jenny Mayes class.  While I was in the shop I had to buy this HUGE Impression Obsession background stamp, I've made a couple of quick cards with it already, isn't it brilliant!  This is a fairly simple card, the sentiment is from a Jenny Mayes Scene-It set and the main image is Stampin' Up, coloured with Copics.  The embossing folder is Tim Holtz and ribbon from stash.  I used a technique I'd forgotten all about for the sentiment:  I cut two sides with the Nestie then moved it along and cut again to cut a long thin shape.
My card is for the following challenges:
Simon Says - use newspaper
Creative Stamp Friends - monochrome
The Crafty Pad - embossing
Paper Sundaes - beachy or summer
Craft Your Days Away - summertime
Fairy Fun Fridays - on holiday
Mami Doodles - at the beach
Off the Wall Craftiness - beachy
CASE Study - backgrounds
